I managed to squeak into Boston Comic Con this weekend! This Friday July 31- Sunday Aug 2 at the Seaport World Trade Center! I say "squeak" because I got rejected from Artist's Alley at first because they cut a lot of artist tables this year. Luckily, a friend I made, Jennie Wood, who was sitting next to me at Chicago's C2E2, decided to condense her table space and offered me the other half of her table! If only there were more awesome people like Jennie, the world would be a much better place!
This is Jennie's recent graphic novel: Flutter! Written by Jennie Wood, art by Jeff McComsey. "Fifteen year-old Lily shape-shifts into a boy to get the girl. Chaos ensues from pretending to be someone she’s not. While coming to terms with who she really is and what she’s done, Lily learns that life as a boy is just as difficult." The more I heard her pitch at C2E2, the more curious I became about it!
Jennie and I (and also her friend Eric, a comics podcaster) will be at tables D320 and D321, kind of in the corner. I'm listed as "Steffen, Mindy" this time, under "S". Looks like all the Artists Alley peeps are in the D aisle, with some more well known artists in C.
Also excited to be trying out AirBnB for the first time for my stay! It's like the more legit form of couch surfing. I've heard lots of good things about it. Hopefully it won't end up in The Daily Misfortune.
Honestly though, this is small potatoes compared to in my last place when the power went out all the time. In my new place, the super is ON IT!
